Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

Sugar


A view of cold dawn sea mist some months ago (it is summer now) in my Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula


World of wires and leaves
A sugar dust of dawn light
Visual magic

This is a magical photo, Gemma! Is that really dust I see, or is it an optical illusion?

Sugar dust reminds me of my pomegranate martini.

I'm with MMT - it's a magical photo. I stared at it for a full minute, and what a magical minute. Thanks.

Haiku captures the essence of the photo. Well done.

Bravo!
Text and photo - the extreme match.
It's interesting blog. I like haiku's too but I'm not sure I can write them in English :)
BTW, my post is also about wires but not that mystic at all.

The pic, the haiku--they could live without each other, but they sure are great together. Thank you. We all look for that dawn after the darkness.
